Forth Valley Disability Sport runs a series of events throughout the year, catering for all types of abilities and ages. We have a wide range of sports available from Boccia, Para Clumbing through to powerchair football, swimming and gynmastics.

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to run our events as planned and it is hoped that within the coming year, we will be able to hold some events. This is ultimately at the mercy of the pandemic and we will keep people informed.

Below are our 2020-2021 events calendar for our adult and junior programmes as well as our programmes and Central Disability Sport contact details.
